Fresh and Open Family Living
The main-level great room is open and bright, with high ceilings and lots of natural light. The walls are painted a sea-glass inspired blue with crisp white trim. An ample and relaxed sectional sofa has a chaise lounge and is piled high with plush throw pillows. There’s plenty of room on the couch for everyone to snuggle up for a family movie night or a fun game night.
The tidy and efficient kitchen has clean white cabinets, sparkling quartz workspaces, and a classic subway tile backsplash. The kitchen is fully stocked with everything you need to prepare fresh-brewed coffee in the mornings, quickie beach snacks in the afternoons, or a complete dinner in the evenings. A cozy breakfast nook space has four beachy teal barstools, while a formal dining space has seating for six people.
Plenty of Private Sleeping Space
The private master suite is located down a short hallway and features a king-size bed and mounted flat-screen television. A wood-tone paddle fan and lots of ocean-inspired touches create a stylish yet casual private oasis. The ensuite master bathroom has a step-in shower.
Two more bedrooms on the main floor offer more sleeping space for your crew. One bedroom has a king-size bed, while the other bedroom has a queen-size bed and a twin-over-twin-size bunk. A full-size bathroom can be accessed from the hallway and has a tub/shower combo.
On the ground level, a fun bunk room and hang-out space will be a hit with all the kiddos in your group. With two twin-over-full-size bunk beds and a trundle, there’s space for seven people to sleep comfortably. There’s also a foosball table, flatscreen television, and an attached half bath with a washer and dryer.
Paradise at The Purple Turtle
Outside on the covered patio, a spacious dining table provides the perfect space for alfresco meals. Grill up some fresh seafood on the charcoal grill and blend some frosty margaritas at your very own cantina bar— the ground floor of The Purple Turtle was built for entertaining. There’s also a spacious yard that’s fully fenced-in, so you can let your four-legged family members run around and play safely.
The Purple Turtle is located around the corner from the Jamaica Beach access point— it’s about a five-minute walk away. You’ll also be close to local shops and restaurants, too. The quiet, residential neighborhood will have you feeling like a Texas coast local, while the easy access to the beaches will keep your whole family in relaxed vacay mode. Let The Purple Turtle show you the way to a magical Galveston getaway.

Chad was a wonderful host. He was accommodating and prompt with his response. He was always available when I had questions. The house was amazing and our group of 10 was able to fit comfortably. We were the perfect distance from the beach and we found the outdoor shower essential for rinsing off after a day in the sand. The house does not show a picture of the washer and dryer but it was essential for us. We used it every day as well. The yard was a perfect size for our dog. There was ample seating everywhere in the house for our large group to spend time together. The only thing I would change about the house is the bathroom in the master bedroom. It was a bit small but other than that the entire stay was amazing and our host was too. Thank you Chad, for a memorable stay.
Great place! Really close to the beach and pleasure pier! The home is beautiful with tons of space! The bunk beds are in a separate room down stairs and were great for our teenage boys! Overall good experience..would definitely recommend and stay again!
Great place at a great price only seconds away from the beach and minutes from everything Galveston has to offer!
Very spacious home with plenty of beds as well as TV wide screens in multiple rooms. Clean, well laid out, and good location near the beach im Galveston
We had a wonderful time. House was clean and very comfortable.
The purple turtle is a great spot in Jamaica beach for a relaxing getaway. The people and neighbors are extremely friendly and the walk to the beach is .3 miles from your door step. The purple turtle lacks adequate outdoor lighting as well as indoor. Also the master fan didn’t work. The walls are thin so recommend sometime of noise canceling devices for light sleepers. All in all pretty good value for the cost.
I stayed with 12 family members, and we had a blast! It had enough beds for all of us, and the foosball table was a hit with the guys!
Great place, very cozy, great communication with the host. All in all I would def stay there again!
This place is as nice as the photos appear! Very clean and had great decor. Large, open concept that allows for larger families to gather together. We had a great time and I would recommend this home to anyone!
This home is amazing! It has everything one needs to have a beach or pool vacation with family!!! Incredible. The hosts are amazing and extremely communicative. We will be back. :-)
